International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno

Brno / CZ
– 26.08.2018
28.bienalebrno.org 

Since it was founded in 1963, the international biennial for graphic design in Brno, Czech Republic, has become one of the most important events of the discipline. Intended as a platform to produce a comprehensive and fascinating “mosaic” by bringing together differing opinions, perspectives, and forms of representation, this year the curators around the Okolo collective of artists are on the lookout for inspiring creative works. A team of experts drawn from theory and practice is assisting with the selection. In addition to the international exhibition, the programme includes lectures, readings, and tours as well as several supporting exhibitions which are dedicated to either individual designers or an overarching theme, for example the graphic design scene in the Portuguese city of Porto or current independent magazines.

Triennial of Photography Hamburg

Hamburg / DE
– 30.09.2018
phototriennale.de 

Since 1999, every three years, photography has been given a special focus in Hamburg, with viewers having the opportunity to see the world from different perspectives. This year’s event looks at the meaning of the moment you press the button in the process of change. Photographs have the potential to capture a moment, pause time, and initiate change in the observer. The slogan of this year’s seventh edition of the photography festival is “Breaking Point. Searching for Change”. It reflects current ecological, social, political, and economic movements and the current “experience of reality” in times of upheaval. The Triennial of Photography offers a wide range of works from the photographic genre, which can be viewed in various museums, exhibition halls, and galleries and at different art venues across Hamburg.

Over a period of six weeks, one “school” each will be located at six locations in the city, and these will view and communicate design in different ways. These include, for example, the Currents School, dealing with the dissemination, hierarchy, and networking of information and topics; the Earth School, focusing on aspects such as nature, the relationship of mankind with its home planet and evolution; and the Unmaking School, looking at creativity, innovation, and future scenarios.

The Vienna Design Week aims to inspire the broad public with the design scene in this city, while maintaining a high standard of content and depth. Here, design is not understood as a purely aesthetic medium, but as an important part of everyday life. Formats used in previous years will once again be part of the programme in 2018: the Passionswege, in which Austrian designers and Viennese production companies can work together and experiment free of commercial guidelines; a district of the city highlighted as a focus – this year it is Neubau, Vienna’s seventh district; or Debüt, a platform for two selected universities and their design students. As in 2011, Poland has been selected as the guest country. The “The ABCs of Polish Design” exhibition is dedicated to the past 100 years of design history of this country, amongst other things.
